The Spiral of Time

Taught a Spanish class about Frida Kahlo.
The snails supposedly signified how time dragged on for her.
During all those moments of pain.

That’s how I felt during most of last year.
Going away to teach was super tough.
Failed at accomplishing my goal of being a teacher.

Like the Wind

Like the wind,
I am transparent
You don’t see the real me,
Only the trail of sounds, images and movement
I leave
Like the rain, I am refreshing
You’ll feel a few drops of humour
and watch, amazed, the pouring of madness
coming from within me
Like the sun, I am blinding
You need to look indirectly
to see the true beauty
that bounds me
Like the earth, I am grounded
You may no walk over me
but nurture me
and new lands for you to explore
I’ll offer
Like the stars, I shine brightly
You may forget I’m here
but I will resurface
filled with courage
to follow the dreams
you’re too scared to conquer
